    SXR 1500 Performance , Is Anyone Working on these Skis or Just the Race Guys ?

    Looking for some mods to do to the 1500 in these SXR's .
    Do they respond well to Timing advance ? Maybe cams ?
    We already gutted the waterbox , put a Macsboost Filter on it.
    Anything Else ? Also Maptuner Flash.

    Iím a tad (month!) late in replying; and while everything you mention is over my head / above my skill level I am in possession of a set of JC Racing mid & rear sponsons which I intend to install this off-season (endless thanks to GH for the ďhow-toĒ Great install video! )

    I am REALLY looking forward to seeing what a difference they make as, just today, it repeatedly seemed as if the ski wanted to ďskipĒ out from under me, very strange and some days straight lines come end asker than others (weight forward makes ALL the difference for me!)

    At my skill level, I canít imagine when if ever I will feel a need to mod this beast but, thatís just me (we hosted an impromptu dock party for some local classical musician apprentices and one of them nicknamed the SXR, ďMayhemĒ, after the State Farm Insurance TV commercial and it looks as if that nickname is gonna stick, ha-ha!)

    Basically anything that worked on a 15f will work on a sxr. The problem comes down to tuning and who/how its done.

    Cams from a zx12r fit but you need a tune.
    Intake mods work but you need to balance getting air in the hull vs keeping water out.
    Adding timing helps a tiny amount but if you dont adjust anything else the gain is useless.
